It is likely that when you read this I will already be gone from this world. I do not expect to return. The following entries are my parting gifts to you:
The complete eighteen chapters of the Bhagavad Gita, 6 years of weekly posts.
I have placed this writing at the end of the last post of the Bhagavad Gita because of it’s relevance to Lord Krishna repeating certain teachings over and over throughout the eighteen chapters. He repeats them in many different ways so that you have many opportunities to get the message. Along with these teachings, He promises that, by practicing it, you will come to Him, be with Him, enter into Him.
“Abandon all ‘shoulds’ and surrender only to Me (Absolute God/Truth) and I will give you liberation and free you from all fears and sorrows.”
- ‘shoulds’ – rules; ought-tos; dharmas, the laws of man as opposed to Divine Law.
When you finally reach the end of the common path of the will, or have had enough of it, you will find yourself at the beginning of the path of spontaneous surrender meditation and inspiring experiences. This is a natural progression.
If you reach this point and do not know about this progression, you may begin using your willpower again to push on, thinking that this is too good to be true, or that it is wrong and I am just nuts. But if you do know about it and step forward onto the path, you will find yourself in the land of spiritual enchantment, and it will become so dear to you that you will never turn back again. This is a good thing.
This exquisitely beautiful new world of Truth, Divine Love and Freedom, will knock your socks off, and you will thank your lucky stars that you have finally found it. This gratitude is with me every day along with the sweet happiness of the presence of God. I would not trade it for even for life itself.
If you continue reading from here, you will become initiated into this path. So those of you who are still running on the fumes of willpower, control and “No pain, no gain,” be warned: (1) this path is too simple for the mind to fully comprehend, so it requires your participation in order to gain personal experience of it, and (2) come to know God/Truth — It will prove itself to you. If this is not something you want, you may as well stop reading here.
You will need a place in your home where you can dedicate one or two hours a day, and where you will not be disturbed or interrupted — lock the doors, close the windows, turn off the phone, etc. Close your eyes, and do not leave this place until your time is up.
Have enough space to allow for movement. This is not a static meditation for the simple reason that the nature of Nature is to move, and trying to sit still or quiet your mind is counterproductive here.
Sit or lie comfortably, then surrender your body, feelings and mind to God/Truth (whatever your word is for that). This way, you will always surrender only to God. You must never allow yourself to surrender to anything other than Absolute God in meditation, or even outside of meditation. God is Absolute Goodness, so you are safe, loved and lifted up.
- Know what you are surrendering (body, feelings and mind).
- Know what you are surrendering it to (Absolute God/Truth).
- There are no rules in the meditation room.
Because you surrender to God and are sincere, God will manage what happens during this time. There is nothing left for you to do. For this reason, all actions that arise in this meditation are ‘non-action’ … because you are not doing it, no matter how much your mind tries to convince you otherwise.
God is now managing your meditation, working free of charge, and gradually fixing anything that needs fixing, and taking you to purity, true enlightenment, Divine Union, Liberation, Divine Love, Perfection and Eternal Happiness.
When your timer goes off, take some time to fully come back before going off to do other things.
The Road Ahead
Continuing with this meditation you will encounter doubts, puzzles, realizations, things that may look scary but aren’t, feeing stuck, impatience for more goodies, and so forth. Anytime you feel you are getting nowhere, this is the time to go on faith that what I have told you is True, and don’t let it stop you. These kinds of times are usually when the most is happening internally, so don’t stop. Keep going no matter what.
You will have amazing experiences, go to other worlds, lokas, planes, meet adepts and Immortal Masters, and find God. You will learn that death is not the end, but a turning-point on a very long journey Home. You will discover both darkness and light for what they really are. You will find that your senses work even without their organs and that not breathing doesn’t mean your dead, all the while feeling everything from comfortable to pleasant and heavenly bliss. I could go on and on, but you get the idea. The key to this meditation is to keep on going, no matter what.
You always get what you surrender to.
When you surrender to God, God is what you will get.
How many times I have heard someone say to me, “Why would I want to do this sadhana? I don’t want to end up like you!” Why would they ask me such a question? They know how I have had to live in order to do it. But I did it for them and for you so you wouldn’t have to do it the hard way.
